This year Russian has lost some interesting aviation objects. An exposition of planes on Khodynka near Moscow was destroyed, Air Forces Academy in Monino was closed and, finally, a training base of the Moscow Power Engineering Insitute and Moscow Aviation Institute was liquidated as well. We are going to visit the last place today.
Just recently the planes were strictly guarded by men and dogs. But today there is nobody here. The reason is probably that the territory is being transferred to the space communications center. Their new equipment is already appearing here.
Two fighters MiG-23 are still here.
The wings have a cellular structure inside which is reminded by the warnings on the aerodynamic surfaces.
This is an engine exhaust nozzle.
It is a landing gear compartment.
The wing was probably destroyed during the transportation, but it does not really matter today. These planes won’t live long.
They also had a Mi-24 helicopter here.
